We’ve got a great idea that we wanted to share with you! To get you guys involved at home we wanted to give away some spot prizes to those who create some Bolt Action based projects using our Project System.

Make Bolt Action Projects & Win £20 Warlord Games Vouchers!

This can be anything Bolt Action based, be it a unit of soldiers, a commander figure, tanks (John loves those!) or even some pieces of terrain. It DOES NOT have to be desert themed either.

Make sure to select this option when you’re putting together your projects!

The Desert trench board looks awesome. Will have to suggest that to my wargaming group for the next project.

Looking forward to following this over the weekend. I love bolt action but not really done anything to do with the North Africa campaign before. This will be a good push in to it.

The light in the room is so eerie, it’ll be interesting to see the effects when the games are covered

Looking good! Wish I was there. One of these days I’ll make it across for a boot camp. I loved my Bersagliere in FOW. I wouldn’t mind some small raiding forces for Bolt Action.

I’ve always wanted to start an Afrika Korps army. Love the stories love the battles. Excited to follow all weekend

The Western Desert campaign has always been the most interesting for me as it featured so many quirky incidents in the often confused fighting. It also had an environment that was equally as inconvenient for both sides.
Very nice prize. The gaming tables are superb.

Wish I could be there again. Next time. Hoping everybody has a wonderful weekend. Including midnight kebap and maybe one or two pints 😀

Looks like fun. I have just finished painting Boba Fett for Star Wars Legion and working on a camo scheme for the Imperial Scouts.
